Some Snapchat+ subscribers can now access the app on PC.

Snapchat for Web has been launched.

The popular social media platform – which launched as a mobile app in 2011 – is finally available on computers.

In a new blog post, Snap Inc. wrote: “Every day 332 million people open Snapchat on their phones, and with our camera, can start conversations with their real friends. Today, we’re introducing Snapchat for Web, a new way for our community to stay connected through our camera when they’re at their computers.”

!function(e,t,r){let n;if(e.getElementById(r))return;const a=e.getElementsByTagName(“script”)[0];n=e.createElement(“script”),n.id=r,n.defer=!0,n.src=”https://playback.oovvuu.media/player/v1.js”,a.parentNode.insertBefore(n,a)}(document,0,”oovvuu-player-sdk”);

Users simply need to head to web.snapchat.com using Chrome to “start a call or pick up where chats left off on mobile”.

The post adds: “Snapchat for Web includes top messaging features like Chat Reactions and Chat Reply, along with Lenses which will roll out soon.”

Snapchat for Web is available to Snapchat+ subscribers now in the US, UK, and Canada, and Snapchatters across Australia, and New Zealand, with plans to go global soon.
